If Dodger looks grateful, it's because he most certainly is. Prior to being adopted, he was just another desperate dog eager to find a forever home, kenneled at a local animal shelter. That's where Evans first encountered him, while on location to shoot a film. It was love at first sight.
In honor of National Pet Day, Evans paid homage to Dodger by sharing a video showing the instant that both of their lives changed for the better:
"This is the moment we met," Evans tweeted. "He was trying so hard to stay seated even though he desperately wanted to get out. I knew right away that he was coming home with me, so I took this video to always remember our first hello."
